Greek Grilled Chicken Pitas

Raise your hand if you LOVE Greek food! I do! When we lived in Utah there were a few really good Greek places we frequented. I was always a fan of the chicken gyros and the giant salads. These pitas are a combo of the two. They’re stuffed with grilled chicken, romaine, tomato, cucumber, onion, tzatziki, crispy chickpeas, and of course, feta. If it were up to me, I’d make these for dinner every night of the week!!

I know what you’re thinking. What’s so special about these? Everything… but more specifically, the chicken. It’s marinated in a blend of oil, yogurt, lemon, aromatics, and seasonings. Then it gets grilled just like it does at a restaurant. You can use an indoor grill like myself, or an outdoor grill if that’s something you have. Either works!

While the chicken marinates/cooks, you’ll want to prep the toppings (or fillings). Like I mentioned above, these are stuffed with a variety of delicious things, pick and choose what suits your tastes. If you love hummus and pepperoncinis, feel free to add some of those ingredients too. When the chicken is done, add everything and wrap the up.

We served ours with hummus and pita chips, however, you could also serve them with yellow rice or french fries too. These are a fresh and flavorful dinner idea, and would be especially great during the summer months if you have an outdoor grill to cook the chicken on. They’re my latest obsession and I think they’ll become yours too!

  1. Oh my gosh! I never like a recipe the first time i try it. This one doesn’t need any tweaking. Honestly, I’ll probably cook it again before the end of the week.

  2. How do you grill one inch chicken cubes?  Don’t they fall through the grill plate?  Asking for a friend…..;)
